    We will be visiting this December. Our daughter will be 10 at that time. Maybe she is out of the norm, but she still prefers kids' meals - adult meals are too big and "no fun"! Is it possible to purchase a child's DP for her even though she is o

    Hi Gina! Trust me; your daughter's normal! I think there are a lot of ten-year-olds who prefer the foods on the children's menu over the adult choices. My son loves that at ten years old he is considered an adult at Walt Disney World, but he doesn't want any part of the food on the adult menu! While you're not allowed purchase a child's dining plan for kids over 9, your ten-year-old is welcome to order her meals from the kids' menu if nothing on the adult menu appeals to her.  Obviously, the cost of a child's meal is much cheaper than the cost of an adult meal at Disney, so using your daughter's adult dining plan to pay for kids' meals is not the most cost-effective use of her meal credits, unless the restaurant gives her an adult-sized portion, which some restaurants will do. At other (non-buffet) restaurants, you may want to consider asking the server if you can pay for your daughter's kiddie meal out-of-pocket instead of using her dining plan credit. Then, other adults in the family could use her adult credits toward their more expensive meals.

    Hope you have a magical vacation this December!
